Best when listened to many times

This has been one of the best audiobooks that I have ever listened to. This book is CRAMMED with so much great stuff though that you really need to listen to it several times or take some notes to really get the most out of it. I have listened to just about every motivational book on audible.com and this is the first one that has made me do something that the other ones haven't...take action.

The only Goals program you will ever need

Liberating! This is by far the best teaching on goals I've ever heard. This audio book is practical, clear and concise.

Brian Tracy knows the human condition well and is a master and helping others overcome self-defeating thoughts and habits. Brian doesn't give you fluff. He talks about real issues and how to really get things done in your life.

This book WILL help YOU and anyone else achieve more than you ever thought possible IF you are willing to follow his instructions and take action. There is no positive thinking guru stuff here folks.

Brian truly delivers a program that is incredibly useful and I find no reason to look at any other program on Goals.

You'll need to take notes and repeat some listens to this to get it all but it is very easy to listen to, the pace is great for learning and there is no filler here. Not a word was wasted in this one. You will enjoy this one on a regular basis.

Best book on goals

I've read quite a few books on goals and success. In my opinion, this one is the best one that I've every read or heard. It gives you very practical guides on why you fail to meet your goals and on how to keep from failing in the future. I've started applying some of his tips and they have been much more effective than anything else that I've ever tried.

This book is also easy to understand. The main thoughts aren't lost in a bunch of psycho mumbo-jumbo. The narrator / author also reads at a good pace.

This is the only book that has ever prompted me to really take action - and to keep up the action. This is so good that I've had it for less than 1 month, but I've already listened to it over 8 times - and I'm still getting tips with each time. I'm very excited about creating my future using the tools provided by this book. Highly recommend it.

Perfect For The Procrastinator

As far as I am concerned Brian Tracy can do no wrong. This book does not fail to satisfy. From the procrastinator to the dedicated goal setter there is something in this book for everyone. The advice is easily applied and you WILL notice a difference in your output when you apply his great advice. It's short enough to listen to quite frequently but long enough to get the meaty substance to keep you thinking for a while.

Brian Tracy Does it Again

I have never heard anything of Brian Tracy that I have not loved.

You can't listen to it just once. There's just too much there. He presents the material in a simple, practical, and yet deep way that you can both act on and listen to over and over again; catching more each time.

He is my current favorite in this genre; master of Psychology and Self Improvement.

Outstanding

Another Brian Tracy classic. As always, packed full of useful information. Mr. Tracy has a very pleasant and clear voice, and his pace keeps things moving along. No time is wasted, there is no filler. I'm on my third or fourth listen, and still pick new things up. The title may be a bit misleading; it does touch upon goals, but there is plenty of additional personal development insights as well. Great value from a legend in the personal development field.

Excellent book but needs an easier structure

The content of this book is excellent, I love Brian Tracey's style and delivery. The content is profound stuff only effective if you actually DO what is being said (like all self help material). That said it would be better if the book was broken down into smaller chapters that you can easily navigate through and are appropriately named. This book seems to have multiple topics all nested under single chapters, helpfully named 'Chapter 1', 'Chapter 2' lol.

Like a lot of these books, the content is great but the usability from a re-use / navigation point of view is terrible. In a book you can write in it fold pages down etc. Audio book structure needs some consideration for this.

listen up!

The best book on goals that you will ever read.
Fun and engaging, yet deadly serious at the same time.
Brian Tracy is a passionate speaker, and this comes across very well in the audiobook. Work the system, and start to achieve your own goals. Highly recommended.

Cannot recommend this book highly enough!

Brian Tracy cuts right to the heart of goal setting from the very start with invaluable advice for success in life and work - I loved this book! He doesn't waste time with endless stories, he just takes you through each step from writing down your goals, reviewing them daily, focussing on what you want and taking action. I now have a paperback of the book as well - also highly recommended.
